I think it was a 38. Indeed the bolsters were horrible. Far from W&Ws finest work.

We had a client go there to look at a new fountain. He was a die hard fountain guy. Was so disappointed in it he bought a used Cig from PBC later that day.

I have a good friend who had a similar experience and now owns a 36 Wright Performance from Brett. Nobody likes being talked down to....especially a check writer.

"OK, since there are cigarette dealer people on this thread I have to ask what's the deal with this newish cigarette center console that delaminated?"

Getting new employees is a tough deal. Glad nobody was hurt-

Thats a complete delamination. I have witnessed several but never one like that where it peeled it complete. Again, glad nobody was hurt. Have to ask Bud what the deal was.

All this Cigarette talk made me pull my 20' Cig out of the garage and into the shop. Pulled all of the old wiring, painting the bilge, the putting a Mercury 383 in it. Over the past few years thought about selling it, but now I don't think so.

not disagreeing, but if you look at the 2:18 mark you see the side is torn up as well and broken in. if they hit something and kept running the force of the water would pull it. seen it many times on race boats.

I could see that running at night in the keys, what gets me is how he was not bothered that much.
